Eyelid Surgery Blepharoplasty
An eyelid lift, also known as “blepharoplasty,” can improve the appearance of the eyes by removing excess skin and tissue from the upper and lower eyelids. Those who would like a brighter, more alert appearance in the area surrounding the eyes would benefit from eyelid lift surgery.
Recovery for Eyelid Surgery
Once the procedure is complete your eyes may be covered with lubricating ointment and loosely covered with gauze, and cold compresses may be applied. Swelling, bruising, and dryness of the eyes may occur during the recovery period. This generally lasts about two weeks for most patients, but recovery time will vary. Dr. Thompson will prescribe pain medication to help with any discomfort and give you specific instructions on how to care for your eyes.
Eyelid Surgery Results
The results of eyelid surgery will be apparent after several weeks, and incision lines will continue to fade for up to a year. Patients will have a more youthful and alert appearance. Certain aspects of the surgery will remain permanent, but your eyes will continue to age naturally.
